Research Methodology:

Various secondary sources such as encyclopedias, directories, and databases have been referred to identify and collect information useful for this extensive, commercial study of the silicone oil market. The primary sources, which include experts from related industries as well as key suppliers, have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the market.

The research methodology adopted in this report is explained below:

  • Top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate market sizes of silicone oil market
  • The market size, in terms of value, is calculated by using an average price derived per kg, and then multiplying it with silicone oil consumption in different regions. Later, using the bottom-up approach, the global market size for silicone oil, in terms of value, was calculated.
  • The top-down approach was used to estimate the sizes of other individual markets (mentioned in the market segmentation by application and region) via percentage splits from secondary and primary research. For calculation of a particular market segment, the most immediate parent market size was estimated for implementing the top-down approach.

The data were triangulated by studying various factors and trends from the demand and supply sides and the market size was validated using both top-down and bottom-up approaches and were verified through primary interviews. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and subsegments. The figure below shows the breakdown of the primaries on the basis of company, designation, and region, conducted during the research study.

The global silicone oil market was valued at USD 1.78 Billion in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 2.41 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.85% from 2015 to 2020. Increasing demand from end-use industries such as personal care and automotive, increasing demand from emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, and favorable properties of silicone oil are some of the drivers for the growth of this market.

Among the applications of silicone oil, the water repellents segment is the fastest-growing application segment. Silicone oil possesses an excellent water repellency property. When silicone oil is applied to a substrate, the contact angle of silicone oil causes water to be repelled. Silicone oil is applied in leather treatment, surface treatment for building materials, and coatings for roofs, masonry, additives for paints, inks and protective coatings, and so on. The growing industrialization and growing textile industry, mainly in the Asia-Pacific region, is driving the market of silicone oil in water repellency applications.

Personal care & home care is the largest consumer of silicone oil among the various end-use industries considered in the report. Silicone oil is extensively used in myriad homecare & personal care applications owing to its versatility, biocompatibility, conditioning benefits, low surface tension, high permeability, and pressure sensitive properties. Currently, silicone is used in many personal care products such as shampoos, hair care products, and shaving products. It is also used in the manufacturing of homecare products, such as furniture polish, detergents, toiletries, insecticides, fragrances, and others. The growing population and rising demand for improved quality of personal care products is driving the market of silicone oil in personal care & home care segment.

Asia-Pacific held the largest share of the global silicone oil market in 2014 and is expected to continue doing so during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is also the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Wide-scale industrialization, growing economy, and growing population are the main reasons for this high growth rate. Many global players are entering into the region due to cheap labor, easily availability of raw material, and favorable governmental rules and regulations. Among the various countries in this region, China is expected to lead the market of silicone oil, growing at the highest CAGR. The high demand for silicone oil in the country is attributed to rapid industrialization witnessed over the past few decades.

Silicone Oil Market

The main restraint of silicone oil market is the high manufacturing cost of silicone oil compared to its hydrocarbon counterparts. The high production cost of silicone leads to increase in the cost of production of silicone oil. Therefore, silicone oil is costlier than mineral and organic oils. The high production cost leads many manufacturers prefer to produce traditional hydrocarbon products.

The demand for silicone oil products across the globe is mainly catered by regional manufacturers. There are, however, various multinational companies operating globally and producing silicone oil. Some of the major players in the silicone oil market are Wacker Chemie A.G. (Germany), Dow Corning Corporation (U.S.), Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (U.S.), Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), Bluestar Silicones International (France), ACC Silicones (U.K.), Iota Silicone Oil Co. Ltd. (China), KCC Basildon Chemical Company Limited (South Korea), and others.
